Week 10 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football

Week 10 Sleepers 2015 by Utter-Fantasy Writer & Illustrator Doug Bowles

There is only 4 NFL teams on a Bye Week 10, but fantasy owners especially in deep leagues with players from ATL, SD and IND, may be scrambling for one week replacements. Here are a few Week 10 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football options

Bye Week 10- ATL- IND- SD- SF

Quarterback Sleepers Week 10

WASH Kirk Cousins ( vs N.O. )-

This is match up Capt. Kirk has been waiting for. If you can’t put up nice stats at home vs the leagues WORST passing DEF, then you don’t belong in the NFL. I hope the Academy recognizes Rob Ryan in February for the best performance of acting like a DEF Coordinator

PITT Landry Jones (vs CLEV )–

If you are missing ATL QB M Ryan, SD Rivers  or IND A Luck, you could do worst than L Jones. He’s only thrown 2 picks in the 3 games that he’s played in, he has the best WR in the game and is playing CLEV

 

Running Back Sleepers Week 10

WASH Matt Jones (vs N.O.)-

Jones had 11 carries Week 9 vs RB A Morris’ 4 carries. Jones did fumble in the 3rd qtr Week 9, but WASH can ill-afford to punish the more talented RB for it, because the NFC East Division is anyone’s to win

MIA Jay Ajayi (at PHIL)-

Interim HC Dan Campbell said rookie RB Jay Ajayi has “earned more carries” after his impressive Week 9 debut against the Bills, 5 rushes for 41 yards

OAK Roy Helu (vs MINN)-

This is only in the event that RB Latavius Murray misses Week 10 due to “concussion protocol”. Murray did not practice Wednesday and his status for Week 10 is questionable

 

Wide Receiver Sleepers Week 10

BALT Kamar Aiken (vs JACK)-

WR Steve Smith’s season ending injury Week 8 puts WR Aiken into the #1 WR spot in BALT. Off Week 9 on a Bye Week. Don’t forget about him for fantasy football, this #1 WR in BALT is only owned in 4% of Yahoo Leagues

HOU Nate Washington (at CINN)-

QB B Hoyer is going to have throw a ton to keep up with the high scoring CINN offense. In the 2 games Washington played before the Week 9 HOU Bye, he had 201 yards a 3 TDs. Even w/ WR Cecil Shorts returning soon, Washington is sure-handed and QB B Hoyer likes throwing to him

DAL Cole Beasley (vs TB)–

TE Jason Witten was QB Romo’s safety valve, and WR Beasley is QB Cassel’s. 9 catches/ 112 yards and 2 TDs Week 9

CAR D Funchess ( at TENN)-

Has this rookie finally decided to show up for the 2015 NFL season? 3-of-4 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Carolina’s Week 9 win over the Packers is a nice sign that he may have but not a guarantee ( he’s had 6 other games where he has done nothing)

Deeper Leagues- CHI Marquess Wilson (at STL)–

Wilson got the start Week 9 as the No. 2 receiver in place of an injured Eddie Royal (knee) and will again Week 10 but faces a tough STL Defense Week 10

Deeper Leagues- JACK Bryan Walters (at

BALT)– It could be close to game time before we know if WR A Hurns (foot) is able to play Week 10. IF he can’t,  wide receiver sleeper Bryan Walters secured five of seven targets for 54 yards and 1 TD in Week 9

 

Tight End Sleepers Week 10

GB Richard Rodgers ( vs DET)-

9 targets/ 19 yards and 2 TDs Week 9

DET Eric Ebron (at GB)-

Week 7 Ebron was targeted 5 times for 89 yards and 1 TD reception. The Packers are near the bottom at defending opposing TEs
